Green fee included lunch BUT, the kitchen closes at 4:00 pm so if you have a tee time around noon, plan on having lunch at 11:00 am! No food available at the turn where you would have your early lunch? Need to put towels on ball washers and in the carts! Pace of play was ok and the course was in good shape!

We really enjoyed playing Bear Creek and were pleasantly suprised when we were each handed a voucher for a free meal in the dining room. Excellent burger, quick service and pleasant atmosphere. Good practice facilities. Quick, professional staff in Pro Shop. Course was good for all level of players. Beautiful homes surround the course but are well set back in the Carolina pine forest.

Best value on the island. Tremendous layout in excellent condition. Bunkers were a little rough after the big storm but certainly playable. Will definitely book again next timeback on thevisland.

We were able to make a last minute tee time while on vacation on HHI. Turns out that we were the last tee time before they aerified the fairways. The course was in decent shape and we enjoyed our round although the foursome in front of us were slow and there was no marhsal in site. We also never saw a beverage cart and that would have been nice since it was hot and humid. The layout was typical HHI with doglegs and some unseen water hazards. Excellent value for the price we piad and we would play again if they hadn't punched the fairways.

Rained very hard 30 minutes before we were off. Although it was cart paths only, the course drained extremely well. Greens were in perfect condition.

Staff was very friendly as was the restaurant staff.

Highly recommend this course. Play it every time I visit Hilton Head.

We wanted to play one more time on the island and took a chance on a new to us course. What a great round at 7:50 am. Just 2 of us and 3 hour round with lunch included. Great shape, interesting and good greens. We are definitely adding it to the favorites!

Condition of course was average at best. The bunkers were hard and somewhat unplayable. Yard markers were brick slabs in the middle of the fairways. Greens were just average. You get what you pay for.

what an unexpected day. Looked for a course to get in a final round at Hilton Head and found a listing for Bear Creek. $39 with a cart, lunch and a beer. Didn't expect much and was very surprised! Course was in good shape and an enjoyable outing. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Lunch was pick of the menu and the food was very good.

will definitely return.

Staff was great

really liked the course layout

you do not need a driver on every hole if you are able to get a roll in the fairway - you will have mid iron to short iron in.

it is better to be short of the green rather than long

multiple tee boxes for a variety of players

golf rangers kept pace of play good - played in less that 4 hours with a 9:00 tee time

Very nice conditions, friendly staff, tough golf course. GolfNow booking included lunch and a cold beer (or soda), so gave 4 stars for value. Have played three golf courses this trip so far, and this one had the nicest conditions.
